By the time the stones are eroded by the water, creating ideal environment for us to water-slide down into the rapid waters. Gently lean over, take a deep breath and slip down this natural waterslide.
Station 3 – Waterfall Jump This is a real challenge for you to take the jumps from a 7m and a 11m cliff into a deep lake. If it is your first time doing the jumps at such heights, it will be a huge challenge at first but you take the experience home that makes you stronger mentally.
